What is #MangaMonday Recommendations?
#MangaMonday Recommendations is an opportunity for fans of manga to share their favourite series on a biweekly basis as part of a community of readers. Below is a schedule and list of topics which you can use to recommend manga on your own social media channels.
Who can participate?
Participation is open to anyone who wants to talk about manga on their social media platform: YouTube, blogging, Instagram…wherever you spend time online.
When can I post topics?
Everyone will be posting recommendations for the same topics on the same dates. The dates are currently every 2nd and 4th Monday of the month. You only need to participate in the topics and dates that work for you.
Where do I get the topics?
Topics will be posted here (below) at least 1 month in advance to give you opportunity to put together your content. The list of topics is curated by Laura (Manga Hoarder) for use by everyone. If you would like to see a specific topic, please make recommendations below.
Note: Not all recommendations will be accepted, and some may be postponed until it fits in the schedule (for whatever reason).
Do I have to talk about manga?
No! These topics are generally created to help you discuss different topics in manga, but you are welcome to discuss any books, games, or movies that fit the topics. Talk about as many or as few titles in your post as you want (there is no limit).
Talk about anything you want, but please do not recommend manga that is only available through scanlations! Let’s protect the industry we love by choosing not to participate in (nor promote) illegal and damaging behaviours.
April 23: Sports Manga
|I’ve often heard people say that they aren’t interested in sports, so they don’t want to read manga about sports. But, you don’t have to love sports to love sports manga!
Let’s encourage a love of sports manga, by sharing titles from the “sports manga” genre, or talk about some titles that feature sports in some way.
On your mark! Get set! Go!
May 14: Josei Manga
|Josei manga is probably the demographic with the smallest amount of English-language publishing. But despite its small number, they have a high average of being worth-while reads!
Recommend some josei manga that you’ve read and enjoyed. Or, share some josei titles that are on your future reading list.
*Josei manga is a marketing demographic that targets adult women readers.
May 28: Magical Girl Manga
|If you could become anything, what would you be?
This week we’re recommending Magical Girl Manga. This is a manga where regular girls (and sometimes boys) use a few magic words (and possibly a wand) to transform into something extra-special to protect their friends, to find a lost item, or to save the whole Earth!
June 11 TBA
|Send your recommendations for topics we could discuss as a group!|
